)-- Veterans Home Care
owners Bonnie and Howard Laiderman proudly announce the recent acquisition of Militaryconnection.com
, a division of Gregory Media, Inc. to offer a greater range of opportunities and broaden their efforts in helping more veterans, active military, and their families.
Both Bonnie Laiderman, founder and CEO of Veterans Home Care and Debbie Gregory, Military Connection founder and Gregory Media CEO established successful businesses by answering a need in the military community. Many active military personnel, veterans and their families fail to access available benefits and opportunities due to a lack of awareness.MilitaryConnection.com
, launched more than 10 years ago, is one of the most comprehensive online directories of resources and information for military, veterans, and their loved ones. It’s currently ranked #26 on the Top 60 Military Websites And Blogs To Follow in 2018 and also named as one of the Top 100 Employment Web Sites by Weddles LLC.
“After taking the website to heights that I had only previously imagined, I knew that in the right hands, the sky would be the limit,” said Ms. Gregory. “Bonnie and I are in lock-step as far as giving back all that we can to the military and veteran community. I look forward to working with her throughout the transition and beyond.”
Since 2003, Veterans Home Care has pioneered a unique service model targeted nationwide to 65+ aged veterans or their surviving spouses eligible for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Pension with Aid and Attendance called the VetAssist Program.
“Eighty-eight percent of our clients who responded to our survey were unaware of the VA’s Aid and Attendance pension until they heard about the VetAssist Program from Veterans Home Care,” said Ms. Laiderman. Veterans Home Care educates veterans on VA Aid and Attendance eligibility and then offers them home care through their national network of more than 2,800 home care agencies.
“We have been looking for strategic ways to broaden our reach, and Militaryconnection.com
was an immediate interest of ours,” said Ms. Laiderman. “It’s a great way for us to expand and connect with active military families as well as veterans and leverage our infrastructure to provide additional value throughout their lives.”
Ms. Gregory is looking forward to having the time to focus her attention on VAMBOA.org, the Veterans and Military Business Owners Association, a non-profit trade association that she founded with over 7,000 members nationally.
The acquisition was completed on April 16, 2018.
